New Air France flights adds 3rd nonstop overseas destination from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport

Air France is now flying non-stop between Paris and Phoenix. Travelers now have three overseas destinations connected to Sky Harbor Airport.

Air France’s route from Phoenix to Charles de Gaulle Airport is running three times a week.

“It’s been a very long time coming and we’re so excited that we have another European destination, especially to a popular one, like Paris,” said Greg Roybal, Sky Harbor spokesperson.

British Airways and American Airlines both fly direct from Phoenix to London Heathrow Airport and Germany-based Condor Airlines offers non-stop flights from Phoenix to Frankfurt between May and September.

In February, American Airlines started direct flights from Phoenix to Tijuana, marking the only international service from Tijuana into the United States. Various airlines at Sky Harbor offer dozens of flights to Mexico and Canada.
